Ein unglaubliches Dokument von 1966 wurde von ATAVISTIC (wieder?)-verffentlicht, ein 32mintiger Experimentalfilm von PHILL NIBLOCK ber/mit SUN RA und sein Orchester mit wildem impro-Soundtrack .. dazu gibt es reichlich Material aus den 60ern und philosophische Verkndigungen vom cosmic thing himself .... msste auf allen neueren DVD-playern und Fernsehern laufen.

"The classic 1966 film by Phill Niblock featuring Sun Ra & His Solar Arkestra, plus rare & exclusive Sun Ra footage, photos & audio 'proclamations'! Composer, photographer and filmmaker Phill Niblock's classic of experimental underground filmmaking with a sensational soundtrack by pianist Sun Ra and the members of his Solar Arkestra. Shot in the mid '60s, when the Arkestra was based in New York, this film was produced using a unique negative process and ultra-tight close-ups on the moving hands and mouths of the musicians. The result is a virtually abstract music film, mastered from a new print in all its incredibly sharp black & white glory. The Magic Sun DVD also includes a luminous, largely unseen photo gallery accompanied by 14:00 of unheard, self-recorded Ra audio: a truly 'inside' auto-bio interview; TRT approx 32:00. NTSC Region 0.
